An Ohio company has issued a recall on more than 40,000 pounds of meat.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture announced on Thursday that Ohio Farms Packing Co. is recalling several thousand boxes of boneless veal products for possible E. coli O103 contamination. Company officials say the products were produced from Nov. 30, 2016, to Feb. 3, 2016.

Officials say the products were shipped to distributors in Ohio, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Illinois, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Texas and Canada.

An undetermined amount of veal cutlets produced by Phio Farms Packing Co. was also included in the recall. All of the cutlets were sold to food services and not directly to consumers.

A full retail distribution list was posted on the Food Safety and Inspection Service website.
